Lingerie and Pregnancy Work Together In Ad

lingerie-pregnancy.jpg

Certainly if the product is adult-focused and the intended target audience is to be adult then by all means, pulling out the big grown up intentions and inserting them in the ad makes all the sense in the world. After all, sexy lingerie can most certainly cause pregnancy and it's a marketers duty to notify potential consumers of this danger.

Johnnie Walker Walks on Aircraft Carrier

dudes-on_aircraft.jpg

There are all sorts of cool places to shoot a commercial but an aircraft carrier certain rank right up there on the list. Shooting a BBH-created spot to announce Johnnie Walker's sponsorship of Team McLaren Mercedes, Pink Film Company Editor Michael Geohegan and Cut + Run Editor Leo King set up their editing suite right on the deck of the aircraft carrier.

The commercial begins with aerial footage, where fighter jets zoom through the sky at high speeds against a setting sun. A plane then lands on an aircraft carrier, transforms into a Formula 1 car racing along the jetway and does a 360-degree spin before stopping near the middle of the ship. Voiceover intones, "In a dog fight, a pilot experiences up to five Gs for over one minute. An F1 driver experiences up to five Gs for over one hour." The scene then slows as F1 racer Kimi Raikkonen gets out of the racecar, takes off his helmet, and "keeps walking" past his admirers.

Juicy Couture Saves Money on Young Models, Gets Bargain On Old

Juicy Couture released a weird print ad featuring old women with cotton candy hair standing beside a more conventional model. Hmm. Well, we knew Sophia was going soon, but couldn't they have done a better job of replacing her? - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Thomasville Compares Women's Bodies to Furniture

womenasfurniture.jpg

In a new campaign called "So You," Thomasville juxtaposes furniture with women's bodies. This is kind of neat if you ignore the fact the whole push for women's individuality, rights, etc, etc, has been about avoiding that whole uncomfortable tendency to compare women to objects. Then again, being paired up with a nice curvy vase is a little flattering. But a fucking stuffed couch? Come on! - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Edit - Oops, the vase is a couch too. Even better.

Deutsch Nabs GM Corporate, Cocaine Drink Questioned

drink_cocaine_1.jpg

- Adding to project work, Deutsch has reeled in the GM corporate account perhaps requiring Donny to take that Speedo off, spend less time with the Big Idea and actually do some work. Oh wait, does he even go into the office any more?

- MySpace and Facebook aren't the only games in town. There's Piczo, XuQa, Hi5 and many more that are gaining ground. Marketers: leave them alone at least for a little while, OK?

- For his new book about America's rock and roll landmarks, Led Zeppelin Crashed Here, author Chris Epting has out together a "movie trailer" style promotional video up on YouTube.

Talbots Cleans Up GAP's 'Watch Me Dress'

talbots_dress.jpg

Classing up the GAP's cheesy Watch Me Change promotion, Talbots has launched a dress-me-up site to support its Classic Girls Getaway promotion which offers people a chance to win a trip to one of several locations for a three day stay and a $500 shopping spree. To enter, a 200 word essay is required to tell Talbots why the person should be awarded the trip. Oh yea, and you can play dress while standing in front of images of the Getaway trip locations. While we like the promotion, there's something about the accompanying music that is a bit more suggestive than probably intended.

Secret Helps Friends Burn Bridges

whatsyoursecret.jpg

In an interesting twist on Dove's Real Women Campaign, Secret gives "real women" (somehow better-looking than Dove's "real women") a chance to destroy someone's life, or maybe just their own. We already knew most of what they were thinking in their heads but now they can spout these social profundities for the aptly-named line of deodorant. (It's the untapped potential here that makes the campaign so promising.) While the revelations aren't all that revealing from "I want to leave my boyfriend" to "I kissed your husband" to "I don't think I'm getting married," we do like "I have obsessive compulsive disorder ... I hide it well." Yeah, isn't that what they all think?

Gizmodo Sells Out to Slingbox

gizmodo_red_slingbox.jpg

After receiving an email from Nick Denton telling us to check out his Gizmodo gadget site which turned out to be all red, we thought the Gawker Media publisher had struck a deal with that charity that paints websites red but no. Gizmodo has turned red because it's part of a sponsorship deal with TV-everywhere company Slingbox to introduce three new products.
